Michael Gaffney – The Headline Act

.

A very pleasant afternoon was anticipated by the Mollymook Ocean Beach swimmers heading off to the Bawley Point Winery to be entertained by none other than our very own man Michael Gaffney, a man of many hats starring in the band called The BLUE MOON CAFE all the way from Canberra.

“What sort of music” everyone enthusiastically asked Michael? “Yeah man say we just call it a collectic I don’t know music”!! (whatever that’s supposed to mean??)

They were all nervous Nellie’s at first, worried that the Canberra Feds gave them a clear warning arrests would be made if they played anywhere less than a few hours drive from Canberra. Especially after the debacle caused when many screaming fans of all genders were throwing an assortment of underwear etc onto the stage.

There was pandemonium as Mike stood there with guitar in hand looking like a mannequin on display in an adults only shop.

After two hours of non stop collectic I don’t know music the Bawley Winery security, namely a band of patrolling geese called it a day and went into attack mode squawking “Enough Enough”.

Seriously though, it was a great afternoon of excellent musical entertainment. Many thanks to Michael and the band for putting on such a fantastic performance.

“DEFINITELY” a must to see.

Chris W. and his aquatic wife Sue had this pic taken on ‘Whistler mountain’ looking towards the 7th Heaven on Blackcomb mountain, British Columbia, Canada. Chris writes: “We are skiing every day followed by a spa in the “hot tub” and meeting people from all points of the planet. What a great holiday and I think Sue is forgetting how to swim after 2 weeks of skiing”.

Blackwater Creek Dune Protection

Schedule of works

Works at Mollymook Beach and Blackwater creek are currently underway with the rock protection structure now complete. As this is a buried structure, the majority of the rock is not visible on site, however you will notice some rock protection at the existing storm water and overflow outlets at the top of the bank and shown in the photo.

.
The carting of sand from Lake Conjola to Mollymook is scheduled to start on Monday May 2, 2016 and continue over a 2 week period. Works are scheduled for completion in June 2016.
